"Down South Nows" history will soon he availahio online 



r "NITED CB.»« 



Michael Stroud has been hard at 
work sorting through pictures and 
documents from the history of the 
Southeast Conference and placing 
them online. As part of the Project 
66-16 initiative, he has scanned 
newsletters and documents going 
back to the days of the former 
Southeast Convention, back in 
1952. Eventually, he plans to 
upload newsletters and transcripts 
up to the present time. 



Michael has also created a Flickr page containing photos from the Conference archives. Many 
were used in the newsletters that were once published out of the office. They contain captions 
and brief descriptions. He'll continue to add new pictures over the next few months.

Just an update, friends ... The pace is going somewhat slower on the uploads to 
Internet Archives that I would like, because some of the items are actually newsletters I 
am transcribing from copies that I obtained from sources other our Conference office, namely the 
Congregational Library in Boston. Because, quite obviously, I do not have rights to post items that 
are the property of another entity, I must reproduce them instead, which is somewhat 
time-consuming. In some other cases, namely in the 1980s and 1990s, the Conference used 
formats other than the typical 8 1/2x11'' sheets, which means that I cannot fit some of them into 
a conventional home-use scanner. I have to reproduce several years' worth as a consequence. 
So your patience is requested, and I promise that it will be worth the wait. 

Once these are all uploaded, Chris Lyman-Waldron, our Conference Communications Director, 
and I will probably begin carrying a "history corner" feature that will link to newsletters from 50, 
25, and 1 years before the particular month. If you are searching for a particular item from your 
church that might have been published, I recommend downloading the month's issue and looking 
it up. One of these days, after Project 66-1 6 proper has concluded, I hope to compile an index of 
all the articles, but I do not have time for that now, so feel free to explore Internet Archive and 
enjoy the thrills of digging. Enter "Southeast Conference of the United Church of Christ" in the 
search line for best results. 

Flickr updates will likely happen in spurts, as I have time to properly organize and identify persons 
in the photos. Since I do not always have the information about the identity of persons, I ask 
people to remain courteous and, if possible, to inform me if they can identify certain people. With 
your help. Project 66-1 6 can more fully tell about our great heritage to a new generation. And 
history is still being written as we speak, so ask any questions by emailing me at 
michaeltstroud@bellsouth.net.
